    Tips that apply to ALL students:

    • 2:15 p.m. is the cutoff time for checkouts.
    •  Submit notes for being absent within 2 days to Attendance office or absence will be unexcused.  Emails are not accepted.
    •  Parent may drop off forgotten items in the Attendance Office.  Students have been told & are aware of the drop off area and will not be called out of class to pick up dropped off items.
    •  Student must sign in on clipboard in Nurse's office and use the nurse’s phone when feeling ill or making calls home. Use of a cell phone is a violation and will result in an Unexcused Checkout.
    • Any student who leaves class or campus without teacher or administrator's permission could be subject to suspension.
    •  No fast food is to be brought in.  We have no room.
